Tofu the Vegan Zombie

Here’s an interesting concept: What happens to a vegan when bitten by a zombie? Or what if you’re a zombie fanatic but your significant other is repulsed because zombies eat meat? Maybe you’re just looking for another fun way to introduce the little tikes to the enjoyment brought about by zombies. Or it could just be that you like cute zombies with unique stories. Allow me to introduce Tofu: The Vegan Zombie.

“Tofu is a friendly zombie, created from a botched experiment in Professor Vost’s laboratory. Monkey # 5, one of Vost’s lab animals, stuffed a block of tofu into the zombie boy’s open skull after accidentally losing the brain. As a result, Tofu eats only vegetables and grains and has no taste for human meat. However, if Tofu ever loses his “tofu-brain”, he turns into a dangerous zombie creature, craving human flesh.”

This little guy is brought to us by Applehead Factory. If Applehead sounds familiar, it’s because they are the creative genius behind the Teddy Scares (more on those later). Tofu’s story is different and the video is fun. Tofu is the result when you replace a zombie’s brain with a chunk of tofu. And what could possibly be better than the story of an adorable vegan zombie? How about a toy of an adorable vegan zombie?

Tofu stands about 7” tall and features 4 points of articulation. While it may seem that his head is moveable, sadly it is not. However, the chunk of tofu keeping him tame is remove-able. The lack of articulation doesn’t ruin this guy but some options would have been nice. Details are substantial for a figure of this type with grooves in the boxes and solid color application. Another nice touch are the thin strands of rope holding Tofu’s mouth somewhat closed. Or at least should assist in case his tofu brain becomes dislodged.

Tofu is available for $24.99 through Applehead Factory. This cute little guy would make the perfect desktop decoration for the zombie fan on you Christmas list.

Now, grab some popcorn and enjoy Tofu The Vegan Zombie in “Zombie Dearest”.
